Podcast #2 – A Conversation with Pepper de Callier, Leadership Coach, Author Part 2

This is the second of two podcasts with Pepper de Callier – who is a Prague-based leadership coach and author.

In the continuation of our wide-ranging conversation we discuss whether leadership differs in small countries and large ones, the rise of populism in the US (Trump) and around the world – and why.  We discuss change and ways to accommodate its speed, self enhancement bias, and the way women lead.

Takeaway quote: “Life is not lived as a generalization. Life is lived by one person at a time. I want (a leader) to see that person.”

This is Pepper’s official bio from his Prague Leadership Institute website:

Pepper de Callier is a bestselling author of three books on leadership and personal development (The Common Sense Wisdom Trilogy), newspaper columnist, senior-executive coach, and Founder and Executive Director of Prague Leadership Institute. He was voted Top Corporate Leadership Coach in Europe—2015 by London-based AI Media. Pepper has devoted his career to understanding, counseling, and coaching leaders globally. Formerly a partner at two of the most respected executive search and consulting firms in the world, Spencer Stuart and Heidrick & Struggles, Pepper has advised executives in Asia, North America, and Europe

Pepper is also deeply involved in the development of future leaders. He is a Founder and Member of the Supervisory Board of Aspen Institute Prague. And has mentored many young women and other rising executives.

For both of these first two podcasts I converted the audio file to a video file and uploaded it to YouTube. Future podcasts will likely be delivered differently. My podcasts are a work in progress.

Podcast #1 – A Conversation with Pepper de Callier, Leadership Coach, Author

This is the first of two audio podcasts.  Pepper de Callier  is a Prague-based leadership coach and author.

We talk about leadership today and tomorrow in the corporate world and how that differs — if it does — from political leadership. In a wide-ranging conversation we discuss the British vote to leave the European Union, the US Presidential election and ways for leaders to connect with the rest of us — among other topics.  Listen!  He’s great!!!  And sensible!!!!
